Branch Lines Around Midhurst (DVD) £19.95

90 minutes

First Pasture Price:  £19.95

In the 19th century Midhurst in Sussex became one of the frontier posts between the London & South Western Railway and the London Brighton & South Coast Railway.  It was the focal point for three separate branch lines, none of which served the town well since there was no direct link to London.  The three branch lines each had an individual character, which is explored in detail.

Although passenger services were withdrawn between Chichester and Midhurst in 1935 and from Pulborough to Petersfield in 1955, the film has a wealth of excellent black and white archive cine film from the Southern Railway era and early 1950s depicting the steam operated push and pull rail motor services.  Goods trains continued from Pulborough to Midhurst into the 1960s and these are also shown in detail.  Colour film shows a brake van ride behind steam and includes scenes of shunting at Midhurst, Petworth and Selham.  Also included is a trip working to the aggregate terminal at Lavant on the Chichester line, as well as scenes showing a number of special excursion trains run to Midhurst after passenger services had ceased.

A brief history, station survey and then and now sequences is complimented by the memories of former railway staff.
